I always thought "We're on the same team" was correct. And when I searched Google book, I was able to get way more results of 'on the same team'. But I heard someone says the second one, and now I'm a little confused. If both are correct, then what's the difference? It would be very helpful if you give me an example sentence as well. Thank you in advance.

  • Welcome to ELL. Is there any more context you can provide, e.g. what was the full sentence where in the same team was used? Was the person saying it a native speaker of English? And what is your locale? – choster Feb 21 '18 at 19:28

The only time I've heard "in a team" is when people are working together on a project at their job. "We're in a team that's developing software for that," that kind of thing. Even then, on is more common. But I've heard it both ways.

You will always be on a team. I have never heard "in the team" used.
